This is kind of old but still existing visual issue with machine condition bars.
Currently game shows machine condition bars, only if character has engineer permission (able to add/remove functional items).
I am suggesting, like it has been done before, that machine (and coil) conditions would be shown
- Always or with own option on game menu.
- Or at least when character has worker permission on beacon.
Anyone with spanner can repair machines, so hiding this data from players is more hurting than giving. Players who want to make screenshots can anyway hide UI when needed.
